If you could be part of a world choir would you help it make it happen?

My goal is to take children teens adults from different countries around the world. This would help raise money for world issues and bring the world together even if its just for a little while. Please I cant do this alone. Email me if you want to help in any way

    If you are a member of ANY organization for choral directors (ACDA, MENC, etc.), you can see that this happens all the time. Choirs from all over are assembled into huge mega-choirs that tour, etc. Of course, this is not cheap - and a significant source of revenue for the organizers, travel agencies, etc, that do all the work to make this happen, beyond the music. You sound like an amateur singer with a big heart - but realize that these things are a LOT bigger and harder to organize that some grass-roots campaign.

    Added - I went back to check you other questions, and found that 7 months ago, you asked about starting a professional marching band; I have quite a bit of professional band experience. At that time, I got the BA to your question, and my answer here is essentially the same - your heart may be in the right place, but the BUSINESS of making things work our in the arts is what is daunting. I have owned a chamber music business in NY since 1984 (I am primarily a flutist, altho it was my keyboard and conducting skills that were my main source of employment for years), and it is the management of the WORK, not the management of the music and musicians, that take most of the effort - and why we take a larger slice of the paycheck than anyone who plays FOR us.

    This is NOT a new idea... Coke brought a group like that together for a commercial about 20 years ago... "I'D LIKE TO TEACH THE WORLD TO SING.. IN PERFECT HARRRRRMONNNEEEEE .. or don't' you know that? It was cute.. but when you take a bunch of children who ALL SPEAK DIFFERENT LANGUAGES then HOW do you plan to handle the LANGUAGE BARRIER..

    What was so FAKE about the performers int eh Coke commercial was, the NON ENGLISH SPEAKERS just had to learn the words by repetition.. so the whole production LACKED FEELING.. you have to SPEAK a language to SING in that language.

    I don't e-mail ANYONE.. so if you don't read this posting then you don't see my answer.
